I actually agree with you, as I've stated earlier, a patch for current owners would be best. I just think you're being a big baby about it. I'd pay 6 bucks to get widescreen support and bugfixes in DD, and I did. And it's worth it. There's not many other games I would do that for.
Raze acts like making the changes into a patch would require massive resources, and for all I know, he's right. Maybe not.
